Are you excited about sharing your faith? Have you been part of a church plant? Do you already lead Bible studies with students or young professionals? Do you have the energy and compassion to connect with the elderly?
The many unreached areas we work in need church planters, theology teachers, evangelists and student workers who can work in teams and alongside local believers, bringing the good news of Jesus in all its fullness to East Asia’s people.
Student ministry is a vital component to gospel ministry in East Asia. East Asian students are often more open to new ideas, and have more time to explore them than those in full-time employment. Several countries have well established student ministries, and OMF workers partner with national student ministries in sharing the gospel. If you enjoy working with international students in your home country, then why not take the next step and move to East Asia, where you can reach many more students with the good news of Jesus Christ?
A Korean Christian leader said, ‘It is my firm conviction that the chief service of Western missionaries is to train Asian Christians in Asia, so that these nationals can reach their own people on the grassroots level with the gospel.’
OMF works in several seminaries in East Asia, serving the East Asian Church by seeking to equip the future leaders with the skills they need for their ministry. This has particular importance in areas where foreign evangelism is restricted but the indigenous church is growing.
